The weather is getting crazy with all the wind and rain, and we’re all in need of hairstyles that can stay put even in all the elements. One major trend still on the rise is the fishtail braid.

The fishtail is the most versatile braid there is! It can be polished and elegant or messy and fun. It’s also very easy to pull off. You can braid hair to the side or straight down your back. There are also many bun hairstyles that incorporate the fishtail.

The hardest thing about learning this new braid is getting used to holding your fingers differently. Once you get used to separating your hair, it’s so easy! The tutorial is here from the Beauty Department. If you ever want a dose of pure beauty tips, head over to their website.

We all have bad days and sometimes they turn into bad weeks. Don’t lose heart, ladies. This week has been full of highs and lows and it’s hard to not dwell on the bad. When I get down on myself, I have a few go-to moves to cheer myself up.

The first thing I do is call my mom. Hearing a comforting voice and her words of encouragement always bring me back down to earth. She boosts my spirits and helps me relax.

If I’m still bummed after we talk, I usually take a hot shower and listen to music. Getting lost in a song and the steam melts away every worry. It’s hard to focus on any one thing when music floods your ears.

The best thing to do when you’re upset is realize how you’re feeling. Once you recognize your bad mood, you’re already on your way to getting rid of it. Think of things that relax you and do whatever works. If all else fails, call it a day and go to bed. There’s nothing that sleep can’t solve.

Be fierce and make your fishtail work!
